ABIM Updates
The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) recently discontinued offering its Practice Improvement Modules (PIMS), with the exception of the Clinical Supervision PIM. Physicians with active PIMS open on their home page will have until April 22 to complete them for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) points.
 
ABIM’s Approved Quality Improvement (AQI) program allows physicians to earn MOC points for quality improvement activities in which they may already be engaged. ABIM published new AQI Program guidelines in January.
 
ABIM has extended the policy announced on Feb. 3, 2015 and will not require Practice Assessment, Patient Voice and Patient Safety in its MOC program through the end of 2018.
 
Diplomates currently enrolled in the MOC program are required to earn a total of 100 points every five years. IDSA’s modules provide an opportunity to earn a significant number of points. MOC program details can be accessed via the ABIM website. IDSA continues to monitor the MOC program closely and provide input as ABIM considers needed changes.
